'Owners Mark and Ty Neal--also behind D.C.'s Matchbox restaurants--named the joint after their father, a West Virginian who was the unofficial "cook of the neighborhood." The old-timey throwback feels… like the real deal here; art deco details, like carved marble door frames and metal air vents, are salvaged from the Philadelphia Civic Center circa 1928. Tables--salvaged former doors--are set with folded dish rags and a newspaper-like menu that features comfort food classics such as milkshakes, meatloaf and grilled cheese with tomato soup. Breakfast items such as short stack pancakes and home-made pop tarts are served all day. '- Lauren Sloat at Citysearch about 8th St location.

"Took my aunt and uncle here for the last night in DC. They absolutely LOVED their meals (lasagna & meatloaf), shakes (strawberry-banana , and desserts (poptarts & donuts) - they went all out.
I was not thrilled w/ my taco salad, it was bland and definitely not worth $13, but again I went their to dine the family, wasn't too concerned about myself since I can go back whenever and order something else - staying away from taco salad."
